ACT Information for KHS Students
2017-2018 ACT Academy
Kearney High School is proud to offer the ACT Academy to our students. Any student who has already taken the ACT and is signed up for an upcoming ACT test can participate in the ACT Academy.
The ACT Academy meets once a week for four weeks leading up to the ACT test. ACT Academy trained teachers lead these sessions, which focus on tips and strategies for taking the ACT.
Our ACT Academy students have an average ACT composite score increase of two points. In our October and November 2016 Academies, our students had many successes with their post-Academy scores, including a few students who qualified for Bright Flight scholarships, 21 students who increased their composite score by three or more points, and one student who raised a composite score by six points.
Our next ACT Academy will be this October. This Academy is for any student who is taking the October 28th ACT and has already taken a previous ACT test. The Academy will meet on October 5th, October 12th, October 17th, and October 26th.
The cost of the Academy is $40, which covers the cost of books. Students who attend one ACT Academy can attend additional Academies at no cost.
To sign your student up for the next ACT Academy, please click here for a form, or pick up a form in our main office.
Please contact Laura Hartman with any questions about the ACT Academy.
